I love how Kristen Bell always has dewy-looking skin that doesn’t look at all greasy or made up. It might help that she’s nearly ten years younger than me, but I’m on to her secret.
This summer I’ve found the perfect foundation to keep my skin looking fresh and even: Chanel Hydramax Active Moisture Tinted Lotion SPF 15.
This tinted moisturizer is beyond amazing. The consistency is so light and non-greasy it melts into my skin and leaves me hydrated and glowy, just like Kristen Bell.
Tips for Applying Tinted Moisturizer
1. Even though most tinted moisturizers have SPF, be sure to use sunblock before applying. I like La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid, a super lightweight sunscreen that works great under foundation.
2. Use your fingers to apply, instead of a brush. This helps the product to melt and blend easily into skin. Also, it makes application a breeze when you’re running out the door.
3. Use sparingly. The point of using a tinted moisturizer is to keep skin looking fresh and moisturized without being over-done. If you feel a need to cake on your tinted moisturizer, you’re better off using a foundation with more coverage.
Chanel Hydramax Active Moisture Tinted Lotion comes in three shades (sand, bronzelit and sunlit) and is available online at Chanel.com for $60.
